Is it too late?

Thanks everyone. The pigeons seem to have self seeded everywhere... correction helped themselves to seed everywhere and the lurchers just course though the orchard like loons.

I think ill try them all in seed trays then plant out when a bit more viable. I've also got a meadow mix, ragged robin and harebell seeds so ill give them all ago in the autumn, maybe sown into a raised bed and covered with netting.

Thanks, I thought that would probably be the case. I did sow a load in the spring but absolutely nothing came of it. I think it was a combination of lurchers and pigeons

Everlasting sweet peas

Posted: 06/05/2017 at 11:51

Not a single sweet pea seed germinated this year (various packets and types) I think something must have eaten them.

I saw some perennial sweet pea plants the other day so I bought them to make up for the disappointment. They're in the poly tunnel with the door open until the warmer weather, I believe they don't smell which is a shame.

I will start my annual sweet peas off in October this year instead of sowing outdoors in the spring, maybe they'll have a better chance that way.

Runner beans and garlic

Posted: 06/05/2017 at 11:44

I was thinking that I might grow runner beans up a wigwam in a raised bed where I already have garlic growing planted in November.

The garlic is growing well but what I'm not sure about is  whether the runner beans will be too leafy and put the garlic in shade before they're harvested in July or if they wont be that bushy in July so will be fine to share the bed

Any ideas what this is?
